Post-exposure rabies monitoring Protocol


The monitoring for an animal (dog/cat) after a possible rabies exposure (e.g., who has been bitten, scratched, attacked by another dog, cat or mammal) is:


On day 1 (in the 24hrs after the exposure)

-        Physical examination

-        Blood draw for a rabies antibody titer test

-        Rabies vaccination


On day 7

-        Physical examination


On day 14  

-        Physical examination


On day 30

-        Blood draw for a post rabies vaccination antibody titer test


During the observation period, please monitor your dog at home for these symptoms that can indicate a rabies infection: these symptoms are a change in behavior


·       Seeking solitude

·       Apprehension

·       Nervousness

·       Anxiety

·       Unusual shyness or aggressiveness

·       Biting, snapping, licking, chewing at the wound site

·       Wandering and roaming

·       Excitability, irritability

·       Viciousness

·       Changes in tone of bark

·       Inability to swallow, fear of water


If you have any concerns, please call the International Center for Veterinary Services (ICVS) immediately to let us know of these symptoms. We will provide you with instructions on how to contact the official Chaoyang District Centers for Animal Disease Control to report any of these symptoms in your dog. The Centers for Animal Disease Control may go to your home to examine your dog. The authorities will then work with you and inform you of next steps.


Regarding the dog that bit humans or other animals:


The owner of the dog that did the biting must provide the dog’s registration license and proof of the dog’s rabies vaccinations (e.g., the official vaccination immunity certificate a.k.a vaccination red book). The same monitoring should be followed as above, except the dog cannot be vaccinated against rabies during the quarantine and observation period (the first 14 days). According to the Centers for Animal Disease Control, the dog must be submitted for a saliva test to check for rabies antigen. The rabies vaccination may be done if the observation period is over and if the last physical examination is normal. All dogs must legally be registered at the local police station and all dogs must be rabies vaccinated every year.
